Woman cursed for revealing father of bestie’s child

In a new post going viral on social media, the internet is dragging a woman for exposing the father of her best friend’s child.

A woman under the username u/festus982 asked Reddit’s r/AmITheA**hole forum, “AITA for yelling at my friend because she revealed my son’s paternity to his biological father and his family when I told him not to?” The viral post has over 10,000 upvotes and 1,000 comments.

The Redditor began her story by revealing that she became pregnant and that the baby belonged to her ex. He was honest with her and told her that he didn’t want to have kids because he was “too selfish”. She wanted to keep the child, and they both made a financial settlement. He didn’t expect anything else from her. She wrote that only her family, and her best friend, “Nancy,” knew about her baby and planned to keep it that way.

He recently told Nancy because he felt like he was able to trust her and reiterated that she didn’t want anyone else to know.

“Despite not agreeing, not only did he tell my ex about me hiding his child from him, but his entire family as well. This is the cause of a lot of issues and my ex’s family has a lawyer. who is threatening to take my son away from me. My ex’s family is influential and I can’t afford to fight him in court, so I’m really scared of him,” she wrote.

Everyone who takes someone to court can be an uphill battle, especially in child custody cases. For the best chance of winning full custody of a child, the court will look to the best interests of the child. Other things the judge may look at are how the parents dress for their court date, their demeanor, and how prepared they are, per Very Well Family.

After realizing that the Reddit user’s ex already knew about the baby, he apologized to the original poster (OP).

“I told her she’s a s***h now and she’s ruined my life. Nancy is getting sympathy from some of our mutual friends who think I was being rude because she thought she was my ex. was doing the right thing by stating, which is like family to her, that she has a child,” she concluded.

Several Reddit users shared their thoughts on OP’s friend.

,[Not the a**hole], Not only did he tell your ex but his family as well. She has potentially created a situation for her in ‘knowing best’ and a huge legal issue for you which not only can’t you afford, but could result in you losing custody of your child. Yes, you have a right to be angry, his interference could ruin your life,” u/Whitestaunton received the top comment with 14,000 upvotes.

“She ran around with her mouth running thinking she was doing the right thing. Did he ask if he knew? Did she approach him herself? No, she took it to 11. She was like ‘right didn’t want to work.’, she wanted to be seen doing ‘the right thing.’ You don’t need that negativity in your life,” wrote u/-siris99.

The original poster commented, “I told him he knew but he said I looked guilty so he thought I was lying and that family was important to my ex so he couldn’t believe it Will leave his own son. He told him and his family. At the same time.”

U/apfreckles said, “[Not the a**hole] Surely. You and your ex have made a decision between the two of you about what is best for both of you and your baby. If she really feels concern for your child, and believes that you are hiding this child from her, she will only tell her, but instead she decided to tell your personal situation to her family. Looks like his goal was to start the drama.”

“Your ‘friend’ is a complete a**hole, he should have respected the fact that you didn’t want everyone to know something personal about you,” u/kirigiriimpact

“He broke your trust. I would demand that he pay for the lawyer that you will now need to thank him for his stupidity,” said U/IsabelDangelo.

“He should focus on his work,” u/DumDumGimmeYumYums said.
